Each year, Adult Resource Alliance, partnered with five local businesses, a "Christmas Love Tree" project for older adults. The adults chosen may have recently lost a loved one, have no family to celebrate with, or don't have the means to buy needed items. This project involves working with 21 different facilities that house older adults as well as Meals on Wheels recipients. This year we were able to fill the wishes and needs for 309 older adults in Yellowstone County.
This was all due to the generosity of Yellowstone County residents and various clubs and businesses. We thank and applaud you for your kindness.
We often receive thank you notes and phone calls from the recipients of these gifts. Besides being appreciative of the gift, the theme of the contact is appreciation of someone taking the time to remember and care about them.
Adult Resource Alliance thanks the five businesses that partnered with us on this heartwarming project. Most of all, we thank you for opening your hearts and pocketbooks to brighten hundreds of older adults holiday season. Thank you all very much. Have a wonderful and blessed 2018.
